Most People Don’t Know About This Abandoned Gold Mine Hiding In Nevada

Virigina City is the home of the Comstock Lode, the historic silver discovery that led to the growth of several towns and the state of Nevada. Virginia City still retains the look and feel of a mining town from the late 1800’s/early 1900’s, and its residents pride themselves on Virginia City’s place in our history. One spot in town contains a surprising secret from Nevada’s mining days!


The Ponderosa Saloon is located at 106 South C Street in Virginia City. Tours are available about every hour on the hour. Tickets are $7.00 for adults and $3.00 for children.
